Great, Let me know if you get them all working in the archroot. I ran into build problems like you are experiencing and I wasn't experienced enough with the archroot to figure them out so I switched to virtualbox. I haven't had any issues with virtualbox since. The difficulty I had with archroot was -- it was just to damn difficult to tell what was installed from a package standpoint. I use pacman '-Q' and 'Qql' a lot to make sure I know what I have. Trying to do that through makechrootpkg was incredibly frustrating :) I was able to get the first few packages done in the archroot (IIRC through arts), but then I lost the dependency battle. The cmake fixes in Trinity may have fixed that. If I get a few extra minutes tonight, I'll try the archroot again. That way we can compare notes. If you have an extra 15G available on your drive, then I would also suggest you setup Arch in Virtualbox. You get the same clean environment, but you also have full control and all the tools you would normally use available. I have put the package list for my vbox install (pacman -Q) on the server at: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/arch/dev/vboxpkglist.txt If you decide to go this route, here is my current disk usage in the VM (with full trinity source, separate build dirs (full) for qt3 -> kdegraphics and binaries with a full Trinity install: [17:00 trinity-64:/opt/qt/include/tqt] # df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 10M 160K 9.9M 2% /dev /dev/sda3 5.3G 3.2G 1.9G 63% / shm 509M 0 509M 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda4 9.9G 3.6G 5.9G 38% /home /dev/sda1 99M 21M 74M 22% /boot -- David C.
